Syria has called on the international community to prove that it launched toxic attacks against its own people.

Speaking in Damascus the country’s foreign minister Walid Muallem told a news conference: “No country would launch a chemical attack against its own people. If Syria did such a thing I demand to see the proof. I am asking the UN inspectors to go public with the facts. The US does not want a political solution. They pulled out of the Geneva talks. The reason is clear Israel does not want a political solution it wants violence and terrorism, just like the US.”

Muallam added that Damascus would use all means to defend itself against attacks from the US and its allies.
